live from moscow this is r.j. you with me to say it's good to have you company with us. america's a buzzing air space is bracing itself for a new invasion of thousands of drawings of where they are expected to be used for peaceful purposes such as fire fighting and weather tracking is causing a lot of concern and here's why you'll never notice it from the ground but the skies above the u.s. are crowded with roughly five thousand planes at any given moment yes these yellow spots are indeed planes but they do total of movements is up to a whopping ninety thousand now you can only imagine what could happen if an meant a problem join this traffic and dangerous incidents involving drones are already taking place there again which is you can review. according to the u.s.
5:02 am
federal aviation administration by twenty twenty there will be up to thirty thousand drones flying in the u.s. airspace not just by law enforcement and other government agencies but also by private firms all kinds of approaches to the f.a.a. game itself two years to come right. out regulate that brave new world where everybody can fly their throw their designated six test sites across the country to see how it goes aside from very serious might we see concerns there's a danger of meet air collisions even now as the government has not yet allowed the commercial use of drones the f.a.a. is getting a rising number of safety complaints from pilots in march of this year and all the tali airliner made national news headlines when the pilot reported spotting a drone as he was trying to land at new york's j.f.k. airport back then the f.a.a. and the f.b.i. have open investigations into finding the drone the plane was flying over densely populated area when he brushed shoulders with
5:03 am
a drone to the horror of the pilots of course during a separate incident with the indianapolis five hundred body. to load him in the opposite direction at a high speed. just to give you an idea of how concerned pilots are one pilot said we're concerned about birds we're concerned about other airplanes and now we're throwing in something totally uncontrolled when they suck one of those drones into the engine of an airplane he said then it will get everybody's attention and one of the challenges is that drones occasionally loose connection with the operator on the ground that's a well reported problem but apart from accidental cool issues there is another challenge drones can be hijacked by someone with very bad intentions so the brave new world of drones can also turn out to be a very dangerous one in washington. r.t. . joining me live is a strain in an international pilots association vice president richard woodwind
5:04 am
missile would win just put things into perspective for us is almost ninety thousand planes above america's territory every day a lot. well that's a fair forty four percent of the traffic in the world because it don't mean you notice so it so easily or yes no do you think it's safe to boost the air traffic with thousands more aircraft i mean or drones so to speak. for what they're going to do with drones is that most of them too low or little or we have three hundred feet off the ground that means that the only target in crowd who didn't care for a drone is from your story cities from approaching landing with a collision risk a star of course so what happens what is the obvious the third of them say air traffic control will they have to influence over the over where these drones can fly and you've already spoken a little bit about the landing there they could be problems when it comes to that so how do they deal with all of that who controls all of this but it's a good question currently drones are not allowed to fly in the same you space at
5:05 am
the superleague craft as they are on his list so the act like any craft and drone technology is not clear yet the military aircraft dragoons stay outside civilities or fly or borrowed or around it but especially space to be noted for the with the proliferation of of civil crimes that is a real problem so you say very few dry intellectually below elder to have a similar space until they can do what's called seats in a voice a voice which is why we'll see if you can see someone you can avoid it and the record right to behave like that you know i got a lot of people including myself are thinking why is it necessary to have these various up in the sky i mean is it both a business or is it from government what's the assess the t. of having them the. bronze achievement of four than an aircraft because you don't put a human being in them you can also. grow to do a job that normally big crowfoot do so you will see an absolute proof ration of
5:06 am
drones doing simple tasks like even taking video of the societal all artists violent pale lawrence search and rescue you know the search part of the risk there isn't many many rolls of the drug could do quite cheaply and why it's more efficient you know quicker the ground and just briefly do you think that the american people will be happy to see more drones in the skies particularly when you hear the word drone you think of drones that are used in military services for instance what do you think they'll make up at all i think most people will be a little where prince is initially but like all things you get used to it it's just off one of the big issues are for me you know estates is a see because most of these firms their cameras etc so wave what you might be in your private in your backyard if you drive last far out of a perfectly good view of everything in your backyard or your call goes a new door of the pits and things running around so is through
5:07 am
a proxy issue the use of drones that is speaking about drones in terms of the airspace in america you said it is one of the busiest air spaces in the world such technology also use in other countries the small drones roaming around the skies and. what is such a popularity in them now are the cheaper the are they more when why. they need it i mean couldn't there be other ways of doing things are much easier than having little flying objects in space they mean in the air. well actually drones are relatively cheap you can go at the comic store and boy on the road driving it will carry our resolution. around for a few hundred dollars and you can fly that around a lot of sight in other words you have to be a kid inside to fly it but that will take hard resolution photographs of a save your own house or you know the local park old any of those sort of things and that's available for two to three hundred dollars and so that's why we go and
5:08 am
say that locally for ocean of these things they fitted with the jaws approach except the relatively easy to fly as well so you don't need a big party skilled to fly some of those and they could be useful spying as well. as oily if you want to look over the i was finishing the rime if you want to go to the state of flying on someone or another business that's you know particularly as of our own and naturally drawn can only say this much is the camera can say but this is plenty of vision on you know. people flying drones all remotely pop all of the craft fair and it's an really spectacular result so does that long to realize that this is where the future of privacy is going to be resupplied a bit all right australian and international pilots association vice president richard wood with their sharing his expertise on that story we thank you.
5:09 am
why did i come i wonder of loss is another man's gain or in the case of the arab spring an opportunity for china right we report on brings you the economic charge into the middle east and north africa region left for the taking by crisis and violence. and out of their limbic torch space walk we managed to speak to the cause will also participating in this unique part of the relay that's coming up next here not. potentially groundbreaking nuclear talks with iran have entered their third day following a mammoth discussion on friday that and long after sunset right under the deal currently gaining momentum to run could it freeze its atomic expansion for a partial easing of sanctions who. the mahdi who ran in this year's presidential elections in iran things to iran's draw done its best to win international sympathy. this stomacher public as we know it at this point
5:10 am
have accepted the basic requirements of the by plus on this point iran is doing what it was expected to do i think the real issue is what it on gets in return i think that's where the problem really stands now the fact the problem is the problem is that mr kerry is going to come back to washington d.c. he's not going to do that live in geneva when he comes back to washington he's going to to the he's going to see the crowd around him the crowd there the congress they are there is very american right being stick around because they had a public and party all up there are going to have to give him a real real hard time. while the potential agreement is not exactly pleasing iran's longtime enemy israel with prime minister netanyahu calling it quote
5:11 am
a mistake of historic proportions the international community got a bad deal this is a very bad deal president obama told the israeli leader in a bid to reduce tensions in a television but apparently his reasoning for when not enough we can tell it just by looking admitting i was official twitter page moreover even with the u.s. secretary of state john kerry being generally positive about the course of the talks not everyone in washington satisfied with it promising i doubt very much that diplomacy is the effect even if there is not the prospect that if diplomacy fails that we will in fact resorting military force however forward as professor of political communication at the university of tehran feels washington is drifting away from the israeli imposed hawkish stance on iran. i think mr netanyahu is isolated. closer friend that the united states is moving
5:12 am
away from the hawkish policies of the party he has worked for the last many years to manufacture a crisis with regard to iran is peaceful nuclear program and he is seeing all his efforts going away and he is obviously upset he should be upset. and the main reason for such a change of heart in both the u.s. and europe is that israel's policy of blackmail is losing its effectiveness according to the professor is basically saying that has an option to attack you learn militarily that talking point that the israeli officials have been using for the last many years telling europeans that if you don't pressure iran economically attack iran militarily obviously given the fact that israel has attacked its neighbors every few years for the last many decades you always have to worry about
5:13 am
an israeli prime minister making threats like that but overall i think that type of threat is losing its. effectiveness and i think europeans are realizing that. stay tuned for extensive coverage of the iranian nuclear talks in geneva. but israel may be losing another level of international pressure. this creates a vacuum that is much more perilous for israel's kind of global object of the country's been those stripped off unesco's voting rights along with the u.s. for failing to pay their dues that's coming up later. online that seems to have carried out a daring bank heist making awful with more than a million u.s. dollars with a currency i mean this is a robbery with a difference because it's not a dollars that have been swiped but because it's more than four thousand of them
5:14 am
and they've been stolen online from a virtual banker that was only set up four months ago is a crypto currency that's unregulated and not backed by any government stored on computers and virtual wallets and in this daring robbery hack is a broke into one of these supposedly secure while lives held by an unofficial bank and made off with the million dollar entrepreneur we're moving safe because security measures out the well compared to traditional currencies it's safe for the federal reserve notes the f.b.i. reports that its thirty eight million dollars stolen from traditional banks last year only eight million dollars this week for the forty one hundred points the owner of the web hosting service has taken sixteen hundred of his own clients and used to give some people hundred percent of their money. why does how big coin or and it's cold in a crypto currency and can pay for products sold services and because held in online
5:15 am
wallets which make them vulnerable to hacking they can be sent online without going through a regulated financial institution and they can be exchanged for government backed currency like dollars or euros and just like gold big points can be mined although the pick in this case is computer power and the more paul you use the greater the chance you could lend yourself a virtual quine their value has sort of just three years ago ten thousands of them could buy you a pizza right now the same amount could buy you a penthouse is william again what we see today in the world was a lie or crisis in greece and the failure in cyprus is regulation doesn't work. you have regulatory capture you just have system failure and the thing that makes it quite exciting for people who believe a bit point is the fact that it's an emergent system if it does require regulation
5:16 am

and may have caused a ruin for some but the arab spring has turned out to be a godsend for others including china beijing's firms and diplomats are taking the middle east by economic storm filling a vacuum created by a possible u.s. withdrawal and as artie's a bill to reports even in quite recht egypt the chinese have found opportunity. this is north cairo where egypt's burgeoning chinatown has now planted its roots. it says the chinese community here is thriving despite the political turmoil. most chinese come here for study or to call the muslim chinese minorities i opened my restaurant recently i know the political situation here is difficult but it doesn't affect chinese businesses it's a good place to live as us egypt relations soured after american officials with the help key military and economic assistance in october egypt has hinted at cozying up
5:22 am
to other super powers like china and the list say the china it's more about its political expansion gaining clout with one of the region's main players rather than finance we have sixty three agreements. i mean different kinds of cultural political egypt is central country in the arab region and it's very useful to have good relations developing relations with us because we have a say in the region merging turn of the chinese embassy in cairo says although two thousand and thirteen was a turbulent year for egypt the country's exports to china increased by a staggering one hundred thirteen percent we were happy to see this figure we tried to make more efforts. to reach the. one billion very small egypt's economy which had heavily relied on its terrorism market has
5:23 am
taken a pounding after two and a half years of revolution and regime change and with cairo and washington and loggerheads it looks like egypt might keep looking eastwards. boccieri actually kind of. my colleague kevin i when i spoke about china as a resource hunger with author investor jim rogers who told us beijing's appetite isn't regional it's worldwide. china is trying to secure natural resources all over the world africa south america central asia jim yourself said the beijing success is build on washington's failures what do you think. well certainly if you look around the world you will certainly see there's a lot of truth to that the chinese have more or less. they're all over africa they're buying mines plantations and everything else america's got very low presence in africa now time is making inroads in the middle east and it's going to
5:24 am
get a lot of oil from iran going forward it looks as though china may even start getting oil from iraq you know america says that they were a liberated iraq in the end it may be the chinese who get the oil tiny's look around the world they see what's happening over the next few decades they're going to be big shortages of oil and many other things developing the chinese like capitalists are trying to secure future supplies while they can get them in there cheap and when other people are not rushing in to buy them. the west say exit out of the middle east has not only been political hundreds of companies including energy ones have abandoned business the tune and that's led to the rise in poll prices for consumers in europe today's cars a report explores the ballooning energy costs. many demonstrators staged a bonfire by burning of energy bills to voice their opposition to rising cost of fuel burning their energy bill is like burning your draft card you know during the
5:25 am
vietnam war they burned there are there are draft cards burning your energy bill is similar in that you don't want to join up forces with the corrupt the big six energy companies in the u.k. that are their financial terrorism so if you don't want to support financial terrorism of the big six energy companies here in the u.k. you would burn your energy bill i suggest get a thousand people on the millennium bridge here in london to get together and burn their energy bill in unison. a look at other world headlines that typhoon haiyan has killed at least one hundred twenty people in the philippines fifty a top obama and nearby according to government officials the superstorm has informed the level to myself the houses the rescuers are struggling as for blocked and phone lines the typhoon is the strongest to ever hit the philippines almost reaching the world record speed of three hundred twenty kilometers at least twelve million people are still at risk from the storm. so.

people in the buggy stony city of peshawar have taken to the streets for protesting aiming to block a nato military supply route in the area the protesters were outraged by recent u.s. drone strike on the taliban command of the country's government says the attack peace talks as the militants who is already calling for revenge. the u.s. along with the chief ally israel have laws a very touching rights at the u.n. cultural agency unesco. both countries missed a deadline for paying their dues to the organization but said they'd stopped contributing to unesco gave membership to palestine in twenty eleven calls to the agency about eighty million dollars a year but the loss is still mostly washington's and televisions according to some international affairs analyst. well there's no doubt that when the united states steps back from any global agency that american influence in the
5:27 am
perception of american moral authority and its political credibility takes a hit suffers some damage one other consideration by the way is what happens with israel because israel also followed the u.s. in suspending its payment of dues and for israel this creates a vacuum that is much more perilous for israel's kind of global legitimacy. than it is for the united states. up next find a national view was a look at different life stories united in unusual ways for british audiences day and going underground with action just.
5:28 am
remember way back when we first talked about the first downloadable guns that could be printed out on a three d. printer at home while technology moves pretty quickly because british police have already busted in legal armory pretty out firearm parts and special three d. printers this technology may make gun control literally impossible in the same way the banning of burning books has become futile and the past they used to be able to just burn books or forbid them from being printed but in the age of the internet all you need is a scanner and an internet connection and the information that's found in a book cannot be destroyed because it is out there on the magical ether of the internet so basically the near future any person with even half a brain and some patients could start making guns in their basement which means the gun control laws will basically become pointless because they'll never be able to catch all the people doing it nor will be able to take the guns not even obama or the hardest of hardcore liberals this technology could be the best thing to happen to the second amendment ever but i shushed my opinion.
5:29 am
but you may realize at some point that the goal of all my working life was nothing more than about making money ask quickly as possible. see what it was all for i couldn't see i was an editor for a glossy magazine at the time of the night ok so i can buy another fur coat or a new car or even an apartment so what i'm thirty four i don't have a man whom i would like to start a fan. yes i knew then it was time to stop drop it all and try to find myself sylvia. i wanted waking up in the morning and go into work to be rewarding those the words of those that i came across an advertisement s.o.s. villages folk is a looking for mothers it's just as if i was thrilled to.
